How do we Assess Macular Degeneration?

Macular Degeneration

At Envision Optical (Burleigh Heads, Burleigh Waters, Nerang and Tweed City) our optometrists always perform a thorough examination of  the retina and macula during a routine comprehensive vision and eye health examination.

Blurred vision will prompt careful examination as to the cause.  Examination of the macula will reveal signs of change and we recommend recording these with Digital Retinal Photography, to allow future comparison. We recommend Cirrus OCT scanning of the macula to check for fluid swelling and to measure macular thickness to enable ongoing monitoring of degeneration. Measurement of central visual fields will also be performed.
